update :

Adobe 'zero-day' flaw is eight months old : http://blogs.zdnet.com/security/?p=3792

Nothing new there, same happens in other companies, one notable one ;D

So in this case, day 0 must mean they haven't even started.
Windows 10 Home 64bit/ Acer Aspire F15/ Intel Core i5 7200U 2.5GHz, 8GB DDR4 memory, 256GB SSD, 1TB HDD/ avast! free 23.4.6062 (build 23.4.8118.762) UI 1.0.762/ Firefox, uBlock Origin, uMatrix/ MailWasher Pro/ Avast! Mobile Security

Don't know of this mitigating of the PDF document attack vector has been posted, if not it is by now:   :)

I have renamed the 2 files mentioned in the article because I have to use Adobe Reader.

It doesn't mitigate the direct Flash vuln, so that's another story.
